A merry band of 350!

I keep an eye on my little band of followers as it creeps slowly up. Like a round of hushed applause, it brings a flush to my cheeks as I feel the warmth of your support.

Thank you for reading what I have to say, for your thoughtful and kind comments. Thank you for the virtual community you provide that always brings a smile to my eyes, makes me want to rush to the kitchen to cook, or gives some food for thought to chew over in idle moments.

Happy Christmas, Hanukah and Winter Festival to each and every one of you, and also to all the silent readers, occasional visitors and new friends!

I look forward to seeing you all soon. x x x
